Participant I understand what you meant. But here is something I am a bit confused. GW said that the paint is covering like a base color but also flows like an ink…creating shadows in the recesses AND highlight on the edges. That would be 3 steps in one and a substantial difference. Yet they only advertise the wash effect. I do not get that at all.

I also see your point that you need to be neater with the runny paint. That is something that especially beginners would struggle with I assume. Maybe if you go from lighter to darker color the covering is still good enough to not matter. They also have the undercoat color in pods to correct mistakes…but that would be a bit counterproductive to the speed aspect.

I am also not really convinced that contrast is as “revolutionary” as GW advertised…but I find it quite interesting to see what this will bring to the hobby.
